7. Stella Young
In this humorous TED talk, Young, a wheelchair bound comedian and journalist, is quick to point out that she is not anyone’s inspiration. She says that too often, people regard her life as an example of success overcoming disability. She has only done what everyone else seems to do—go to college, get a job and take care of herself.  How, she asks, is that inspirational? Spend time with this amusing woman and you’ll understand what she means.
